EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future


Keynote Speaker: Sensors – unlocking insights

Data is the new global currency, and sensors are one of the key enablers.  In some sectors however, like F1, data ruled the roost for decades.  In the late 90s, when Caroline joined McLaren, cars already carried hundreds of sensors to understand its performance and improve models.    

Similarly in Healthcare, sensors are no longer confined to hospitals, and can monitor patients in their daily lives.  However, their use is not yet pervasive, often due to usability, cost and data accuracy and privacy issues.   This talk will discuss some use cases of sensors in primary healthcare.
